Christians and pro-life voters are again in the crosshairs of another Democrat candidate for president. In startling comments, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has stated that pro-life views are “not acceptable” and compared them to racism.
“I think there’s some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable. Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic,” she said.
The candidate then suggested abortion is not about protecting human life, but about keeping faith out of government issues.
“And we believe in this country in the separation of church and state, and I respect the rights of every American to hold their religious beliefs true to themselves, but our country and our Constitution has always demanded that we have a separation of church and state,” Gillibrand continued.
She then accused pro-life conservatives to trying to force their religious beliefs on America.
“And all these efforts by President Trump and other ultra-radical conservative judges and justices to impose their faith on Americans is contrary to our Constitution and that’s what this is. And so I believe that for all of these issues, they are not issues that there is a fair other side,” Gillibrand continued. “There is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom.”
